Barney of Wisconsin, in charge of the pension appropriation bill, then called up this measure and made a general explanatory statement of Its provisions. Allen of Mississippi of the appropriations committee, In reply to Barney, called attention to the fact that when he first come to congress, fourteen years ago, the pension appropriation hill Invariably precipitated a b'loody shl-t discussion. He congratulated the country that congress had progressed since, then and that there would be no acrl- monous discussion on this bill Hud Reached the Maximum. The country at last had the gratifying Information that the pension roll had reached the maximum. "And I congratulate the country for this," said Allen In conclusion, "that while one of the most gallant and desperate soldiers of the confederacy (himself) helped to report this bill the president of the United States Is down In Dixie doing honor to the confederate dead. We all have cause to rejoice." [Laughter and applause.] There was no further debate upon the bill. It was read through without a word^of criticism and passed, the whole time'occupied in Its consideration being less than twenty minutes. This la the shortest time on record for a general pension bill. The bill carries $145,233,830. In the Senate. The senate decided upon convening to take a recess from 1:30 until 3:30 o'clock In order to permit senators to attend the funeral of Mrs. Bright, wife of the sergeant-at-arms of the senate. Vest made a brief personal explanation, the purport of which was that he had received a letter from Attorney General Grlggs denying that at a banquet In New York he had, -as quoted, expressed the opinion that the constitution made for thirteen half developed colonies could not reasonably be expected to meet the demands of the greatest nation in the world. Morgan presented a memorial from the National Board of Trade favorable to the construction of the Nicaragua canal, asking that the document be printed in the Congressional Record. Animated Discussion. Allen objected and the objection provoked the basis of an animated discussion involving the rules of the senate as well as the wisdom of the construction of the canal. Morgan accepted the objection as an effort to obstruct the legislation for the canal and prevent the country's securing Information on the subject. Allen resented this Imputation, saying that he was favorable to the canal on getigfal principles, though advocating government ownership. He predicted that the canal would cost $600,000,000.__ THE YOSEMITK FOR MANILA. Will Make Protracted Cruises Among Inlands and Carry Troops. Washington, Dec. 16.—The auxiliary cruiser Yosemlte has been ordered to the Pacific by way of Suez. She has been laid up for the last three months at the League Island navy yard, but will be taken to Norfolk In about a week and made ready for the long voyage. The Yosemlte will go directly to Manila and Join Admiral Dewey's fleet. She was selected for this duty on account of her peculiar adaptability for the services which the navy expects to perform In the Philippines after the Spaniards depart. Hermoderatedraught and great steaming radius especially fit her for protracted cruises among the Islands, as well as for carrying troops to the localities where disorder may arise. The Yosemite will take large quantities of naval stores from Norfolk to Manila and probably 600 enlisted men to relieve those sailors In Dewey's fleet whose terms of enlistment have about expired. She Is expected to start across the Atlantic soon after the first of the year and may act as consort for the regular troops which are to be sent by the same route about that time.
